Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens.


Treat Braden wasn’t looking for love when Max Armstrong walked into his Nassau resort, but he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield to the sweet, sensual woman beneath. One magnificent evening together sparked an intense connection, and for the first time in his life Treat wanted more than a casual affair. But something caused Max to turn away, and now, after weeks of unanswered phone calls and longing for the one woman he cannot have, Treat is going back to his family’s ranch to try to finally move on.


A chance encounter brings Treat and Max together again, and it turns into a night of intense passion and honesty. When Max reveals her secret, painful past, Treat vows to do everything within his power to win Max’s heart forever—including helping her finally face her demons head-on.

Lovers at Heart

This romance is just a little too sweet. No fighting, no conflict, no drama. Things that usually make a good romance. You would think it would be boring but it kept me interested for the most part. It worked. Really liked it.

Max and Treat have spoken over the phone numerous times while making preparations for an upcoming wedding. When Max walks into Treat's Nassau resort, he is immediately smitten. After an amazing night spent walking the beach and talking, Treat wants more. When he sees Max entering an elevator with a man the next morning, in the same clothes as the previous night he can't believe his eyes and wants nothing to do with Max. Only, he can't forget her.

Fast forward several months....Treat heads home for some down time with his family. While meeting up with his sister at the festival, Treat sees Max and vows to make things right and make Max his. Max isn't easy to figure out and it takes patience and understanding to help her overcome the pains of her past. Until Max confronts her past, they won't be able to move forward as a couple.

As much as I LOVE every Melissa Foster novel I've ever read, I highly recommend reading the original story of Max and Treat. Although I read the original novel several years ago, I don't recall it being so overwhelmingly sweet. I enjoy entertaining, romantic, stories that end with a HEA. At times, their journey was sooo unbelievable. I believe in fate and in things turning out as they're meant to be, but I don't think fate works in our favor 100% of the time. Proclaiming forever love after a couple of dates, to the Knock Out roses being the exact ones that lined Treat's cottage, to the magical ability to leave work and hop on a plane on a whim, to purchasing a whole new wardrobe to please your significant other....Separately, they are believable but combined a little too unbelievable. With that being said, I thought this version was entertaining, just not relatable to me. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Love this Couple!

I fell in love with the original Lovers at Heart where we met the ever so charming, good looking and debonair, Treat Braden and fell in love with both he and Max Armstrong. I really enjoyed this updated version by Melissa Foster. I liked the backstory on their time in Nassau and I really liked how they talked about their problems and what was going on and worked through everything. I also liked meeting some new friends along the way and we also heard from some of our friends from other books. I listened to this great story as an audiobook narrated by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York. I have heard great things about this narrating duo and they did not disappoint. They both did a great job in their narration and in my personal opinion, Sebastian York has this quality to his voice that I could listen to all day. He also did a great job narrating Hal Braden. I will definitely listen to more audiobooks by this duo.
